The Seneca County Junior Fair Livestock Sale Committee would like to invite everyone out to the livestock sale at the Seneca County Fair on Saturday, July 31st.
If you are not familiar with the Livestock Sale, this is a way for YOU as local businesses and community members to support the 4-H and FFA youth of Seneca County with the completion of their livestock projects. A few things that these youth learn about is marketing of their livestock, record keeping, business plans, and responsibility among many others. These youth will hopefully stay or return to our community as our future leaders and workers. Many of the youth use the proceeds from the sale of their animals to purchase future livestock projects, education purposes or invest money for vehicles and homes someday.
How can you help? You can help by attending the auction on Saturday, July 31st at the Seneca County Fairgrounds. This is a public auction held for each individual’s animal, they are allowed to sell one animal through the auction ring and if they have a second animal they may sell that animal through our add-on/pledge sale (similar to a silent auction). You do not take possession of the animal, you are simply supporting the youth with your contribution, so need to worry about what you will do with the animal if you are the winning bidder!
What do you get as a buyer? Your name will get announced during the livestock sale to everyone in attendance. Your name will appear in the results from the livestock sale that is in The Advertiser Tribune a few days following the sale. Your name will appear in the Seneca Co. Junior Fair fairbook and on the Seneca County Fair website. Your name will also appear at next year’s fair as we require the exhibitors to recognize their last year’s buyers. Your donation to these youth are paid to the Livestock Sale Committee and then are dispersed to the exhibitors after all money is collected. What a great way to advertise your business name throughout the community!
